iPhone 5 debuts in 22 countries, adds regional carriers

As of midnight, 22 additional countries saw the iPhone 5 become available from Apple. The full list includes Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. Prices vary from country to country, but some customers are already complaining about the high costs of the new phone—an annual tradition resulting from international exchange rates, taxes, and country-specific costs of doing business.

The iPhone 5 was also released on a number of regional carriers today, and some of the carriers are already offering discounts on the phone. The regional carrier list includes Cellcom, nTelos, and Appalachian Wireless — all three are knocking $50 off the standard price of the major carriers — as well as C Spire, GCI, and Cricket Communications. Cricket is notably offering a no-contract iPhone 5 for $499. [via PC Magazine]
